Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Source for Animal & Bird Identificatio This book is a must-have for anyone travelling in Africa, particularly those going on safari. The pictures are fantastic, and there are often several photos of each animal or bird which helps immensely with identification. It is compact, durable and lightweight, perfect for backbackers or high-end travellers alike, and it contains every bird and antelope species you could ever come across. As most of these animals are not found anywhere off the African continent, it is truly a traveller's bible.
